First of all, I want you all to know that Jax is weak as hell this patch, and you should probably not play him, since there are other hero's like or that are much more useful.

But before we start, as for heroes and support how Jax need's support, there are other heroes who could fulfill that role better then him and still do everything else fine.

he's FUN. That's really important.

But currently, as of this writing, he's incredibly inviable. There's just too many useless aspects on him right now, like dodge

He's difficult to use but fun to play. His mechanics make him dependent on RNG and timing. During the very early parts of a game, his damage is crazy against squishies. Since his damage falls off during the mid-late game phases and doesn't really come back until the super-late game he isn't very viable anymore.

If you want a champion to dominate with, I suggest saving for Renekton or Nocturne. If you want a champion that's fun, sure, go for Jax.

His leap can be used on wards.So if you carry a single ward at all times you have a decent chance of escaping.

I sometimes bring one to my lane and place it near my tower in case I need to get away from harass/early game gank attempts.
